Question for the ladies, period



Recommended Posts

I had surgery 3/9. I went back on birth control about a month later. I have had my period for over 2 weeks. Also, in the last 2 weeks I have only lost a pound a week. Has anyone else had their period like this? It is not heavy and not consistent but will start sometime during the day.

My period started about ten days after surgery and didn't stop for over a month. Heavy.

I went to my gynecologist and they put me back on medroxyprogesterone (with approval from my surgeon) last Thursday which was supposed to control my period, but it came back in four days and it's still going.

I know the PA said that the weight loss is going to release estrogen stored in the fat so periods are going to be weird, but I am so tired of bleeding so much.

My period was late by a month and a half before surgery. I got it about 9 days after surgery. It typically lasts 3 days maybe 4 and it lasted light to medium for 6 days and now intermittent spotting.

Ladies. I'm a 5 year leaved pre menopausal mess. Lol.

However. I did experiance heavier periods for a few months after surgery. I had another Ob procedure done 10 months before that was to remove a tumor on uterus. They said it would cause issues it didn't until I was sleeved. I also experienced cold spells as the weight fell off. Also major hair loss about 2-3 months out. That stopped too. It's all a re adjustment of the hormone levels. If anything to extreme appears call dr ASAP.

It leveled out and became regular again well until January of this year. Now it's any keys guess if and when it will arrive.
